Muugoni village and mangrove canoe

Go Back
A piece of the untouched Zanzibar – the mangrove forest
On the South of Zanzibar lies Muugoni, a lush and green area lives Rama. Rama is a forest preservation enthusiast who invite us to his and his friends homes.  You will come close the villagers, see how they live, cook, go to school  etc.

During the village tour Ramas wife Warda prepares a that we eat together on the floor like the Zanzibaris. Then it is time to walk down to the mangrove forest where Rama will share his his knowledge about the fruits and medicinal plants.

The mangrove forest is a quiet and mysterious place, forest being able to live in the salty Indian Ocean. The atmosphere is completely different from the Ocean coast. When coming down to the mangrove our captain is waiting to bring us out with his traditional wood canoe daily used by the fishermen. On the way you will meet other fisherman out to catch the dinner for the day.
